the re-elected president obama delivers his state of the union speech, the number two republican in the house is making over the gop message. eric cantor speaks to the american enterprise institute about 90 minutes from now. this morning he spoke exclusively with our dana bash. dana, i want to bring you in on this. eric cantor is not the first republican to shake up his party and give a new direction. there's a brand new poll that shows president obama has a 70% approval rating among hispanics, are republicans listening more to that than eric cantor or a little of both? >> reporter: a little of both. i think if you ask eric cantor they are not mutually exclusive. a big part of why he will give this speech is because republicans understand what happened in the last election. which is that they got the majority of white men, that's about it. but interestingly enough, when it comes to immigration, we have seen big movement on the senate side, especially among republicans. but still house republican leaders, including eric cantor, they are still very cautious, when it comes to immigr

was confused about, you had president obama inviting labor unions to talk about this. labor unions are trying to play both sides. seems like they're not representing their members best interests because bringing more cheap labor into the country and making them legal, seems like people it is most threatening to are current union members. at the same time they clearly want these folks to come in and be legal because it would beef up the union rolls which are shrinking right now? >> right. it didn't happen in '86 when we he our last amnesty. didn't increase unionization. the hope this time it will. if you want to represent the interest of american workers obviously encouraging 7 or 8 million illegal immigrants here to go home would be best. unemployment is 15, 20% among the young and less educated who compete will legals. but union leadership is hoping for new members but it also sees itself as part of a coalition politics with progressives. so in a way they're putting sort of coalition politics first hoping for progressive social policy but, their own workers kind of are not their top priority
